The View from Broome Street, Catskill

Hazelton Collection, Vedder Research LibraryView from Broome Street looking over West Bridge towards the brick yards where Catskill Middle and High School now stand. The West Shore Railroad Viaduct is visible in the distance (with a blurred train crossing it) and appears as it did before its major 1902 reconstruction. Of note is the partially dug out hillside just beyond the brickyard which was being excavated for clay. That spot is roughly the location of the Catskill School District’s current athletic complex. This photo was likely taken by S. E. Davis around 1896 and is from the Hazelton Collection, Vedder Research Library.
